Does libdrizzle support MySQL Windows Authentication plugin

Asked by panx

We are trying to set up a MySQL proxy to a MySQL server that supports Windows Native Authentication. However the connection failed with the error message "ERROR 1251 (08004): Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client".

I can't find any document related to it online. please help to confirm if libdrizzle supports Windows Authentication method?

Unfortunately libdrizzle 1.0 which is in the Drizzle source does not support the newer MySQL 5.6 authentication methods.

Libdrizzle 5.1 ( has some support for this but it has not been tested. If the Windows Authentication method requires a client side plugin instead of sending passwords as plain text this certainly will not be supported at this stage.

Can you help with this problem?
